PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The goaltender on the Plymouth State College hockey team has earned Eastern College Athletic Conference honors for his performance for the Panthers last week.
Freshman goalie Larry Forgue (Nashua, NH) was named to the ECAC Northeast Weekly Honor Roll. The rookie netminder made 36 saves in a win over Massachusetts College last week, and kept Plymouth State alive for a Northeast Division play-off berth.
A 5'8", 155-pounder, Forgue is having a terrific freshman season. He leads the 18-team ECAC Northeast in saves percentage (.931), stopping 379 of the 407 shots he's faced, and ranks second in the league in goals against average (2.26). He has made more than 40 saves in a game three times.
Forgue was the ECAC Northeast Rookie of the Week after a solid performance for PSC last month. He was also on the ECAC Weekly Honor Roll once in December.
PSC, 10-8 overall and 7-4 in league games under first-year head coach Mike Bonelli, remains in contention for one of the eight ECAC Northeast play-off berths (out of 18 teams). The Panthers, who are in the midst of an 11-day lay-off between games, are alone in seventh place with 14 points, one point behind UMass Dartmouth and Stonehill and two points ahead of Assumption and Tufts.
Plymouth State gets back into action this Saturday (Feb. 6) with a conference match-up at Curry College, a game that has been changed to 4:00 p.m. Four of PSC's final five regular season games are at home (Waterville Valley Ice Arena), beginning Wednesday (Feb. 10) against Suffolk University (7:00 p.m.).
